A binman narrowly escaped being “crushed to death” after he was dragged into a refuse lorry while working in Birmingham.
Video has emerged of the dramatic incident, in which the man’s clothes appear to become caught on the lifting mechanism of the vehicle before he is pulled into the back of the lorry.
He escaped injury when a colleague spotted the accident and rushed over to press a button to stop the vehicle.
Birmingham City Council has said it is currently investigating the incident.
The man who released the video has said he believes the accident took place at the end of October last year but it is unclear where exactly the incident was filmed.
